Scotland- This 13-year-old single malt was initially aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 8 years before being finished in ex-Cognac casks for a duration of 4 years. This whisky was selected by Dr.Bill for a unique experiment with cognac casks due to its soft, mellow taste.
Scotch, quite simply, is whisky made and aged at least three years in Scotland. All whisky made in Scotland is Scotch, and must follow specific production regulations.
All Scotch varieties fall within two broad categories or are blends of these two: malt whisky and grain whisky. Malt whisky must be 100 percent malted barley. Grain whisky may include wheat, rye, corn or other grains.
